It may be the end of ski season, but that doesn't mean the live music has to stop. Enjoy great local talent from valley rockers Old Death Whisper on Saturday, April 23, at Whiskey Jacques' in Ketchum at 10 p.m. In addition, Triple Nixon will open the show. The bands have original tunes and music that continue to raise the bar for valley entertainment.
Old Death Whisper band members describe their band as "a cocktail of dirty Western roots music and country-tinged parlor tunes that spikes raw rebellion into the veins of American music with the dust of the Idaho back roads."
Triple Nixon is all original songs and music with an edgy rocker sound as well as heart-filled lyrics.
At the Sun Valley Brewery in Hailey on Friday, April 22, at 8:30 p.m., enjoy vocalist and drummer Talia Keys and Marinade. Keys plays funk, blues and reggae. In addition, take part in the brewery's Monday evening variety show, called The Phools Lounge, on Monday, April 25, at 6:30 p.m. It's not just for musicians—all entertainment is welcome that is appropriate for a family audience.
In addition, the Silver Dollar in Bellevue will have live music by Hoodwink on Friday, April 22, at 9 p.m. A new event at the Silver Dollar, Band Jam and Open Mic Night, starts up on Saturday, April 23. Attendees are encouraged to bring guitars and get ready to sing with valley band members.
"We did it recently and had a hoot of a time," said Silver Dollar owner Pete Prekeges.
Band Jam and Open Mic Night will take place every fourth Saturday.
Other live music around town will take place at the closing-of-Bald-Mountain street party at Apple's with Equaleyes at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 24.
